It was more or less meaningless the day it happened, for me. I had long since distanced myself from the current DEAD and was already a 60s fanatic. I thought he was not going to make it out of the 80s, healthwise, so it was not a shock at all at the time...

After a month or so, I got the picture of Jerry and Mtn Girl out of a magazine (those that know the early days know the pic), and put it on my door at work...the only picture there for 12 yrs...

In all this time, only one person has recognized the two of them (I mean even Jerry, much less Caroline). Nonetheless, I have always thought that picture was the perfect tribute.

Along these same lines, do you remember when the news came out that Jerry was in a coma?? That was another holy S#*t moment.

Yep, Scrim--that was my moment...I had 'left' them a few yrs before, thought that 'that' was the end, and each yr expected the news...since I had 'deserted' them (in terms of active touring), it was less emotional when it came.

I came 'back' after his death, and hope he is okay with that.
